Tiff Kids 2013

 

 

I attended the opening of TIFF Kids (Toronto International Film Festival) with my sisters and their husbands. My brother-in-law Mathieu’s aunt, Nancy Florence Savard, directed and produced the movie that was chosen to be the opener. The film Legend of Sarila is Canada’s first 3D animated feature — a really charming story about the adventures of three youths living on the Arctic tundra who must brave numerous dangers to save their community from starvation.

We had an ice storm the night before (yeah, in April). But the temperature went down and it was my first time to dress human again.

 

Check out the films that are in TIFF Kids. The festival is on until April 21.
